good things for this country and barack obama will have another four years to try to turn things around. >> van jones, i think the reason it struck a chord, i certainly felt genuinely moved by it, is you could certainly see the brutality of these campaigns, what it takes out of people. even barack obama, who has been president for four ice-cold years, suddenly got very emotional, sort of looking at people that were him 25 years ago, on the beginning of their political careers. perhaps one of them may be president one day. it was a pretty profound, in its own way, profound speech of just five minutes or so. >> yeah. well, you know, the ice man leaked. if you weren't moved by that, you have been in politics for too long. in some ways this whole campaign was sort of the return of the community organizer. that's really why the campaign triumphed is because it was a return to the grassroots finally and a reliance on the people and then a victory. people talk about the technology about it, the computers of it, but there's a man at the center of that, his name is barack obama, and he has his o

. and the most important thing -- well, obama is getting ready to take off and run to all these countries giving his nation-building speeches and giving his family a vacation and all this and that, but there's only one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if
pressure from inside his own country and stuck with obama on the 2014 time line to get troops out of afghanistan. the two countries have weathered the financial crisis by maintaining $180 billion trade relationship under cameron's watch, britain took a lead role in taking down moammar ga dadfy and remained in lock step in sir you and iran. after tuesday's results came from prime minister cameron had only good things to say about the man he has been working with, another les until his own re-election bid in 2015. >> what i'd like to congratulate barack obama on his re-election. i've really enjoyed working with him over these last few years. i look forward to working with him again over the next four years. >> the prime minister made a point to call president obama to congratulate him thursday. even tweetding out photos of him on the phone about it. according to cameron's spokesman, the two talked about five minutes and promised a longer discussion on a range of issues. joining me now is the british ambassador to the united states, sir peter. nice to meet you finally. you've been he
on this or will we find ourselves flying over the fiscal cliff? >> obama has several problems. one is he doesn't want to throw the country into a worse economy and he's already created. he will extend the tax cuts for another two years. exactly what he did two years ago. the cuts in spending from the sequestration -- those will take it back. that is good for the economy because it is the only spending restraint. gerri: some people don't think so. especially with iran right now in parts of the middle east up in flames. we slow down spending on defense, let me say that? >> first of all, it is a defense of the spending increase. everyone knows there is a great deal that can be saved. we had their pensions that were saved. there is a lot that can and will be saved out of the budget. that is not his agenda. at the end of the day in the last election, he promised that he won't raise your taxes if you make less than $250,000 per year his promise, it is for one year only. he does have his tax increase for the rich people and he is still $7 trillion short. that is his goal. gerri: wow. i don't know where that
of the democrats, i would say president obama and the team really has to look at the country from 50,000 feet, and not 10,000 feet. number one, the dream act. there are so many individuals that could benefit. i know whether you are for or not, closure would be helpful. number two. single payer health care. there is an argument about whether we should have it, but if you look at the bottom line, if we were able to come to a really good balance between single payer and what the republicans are looking for and obama-care, this country would be fiscally in a better condition down the line. finally, the supreme court appointees. the most important thing that democrats and president obama can do is to realize that within a few years there will probably be some folks that will retire, and a legacy that will live on will be those appointees. host: i will have to leave it there. let me divide that. gail russell chaddock, the first three of the gop side, where he says they need to unite, the social issues are ones favored by americans, which is interesting given the ballot initiatives were four states
of media mash. with the re-election of barack obama, we need to ask ourselves, where is this country headd? are we still a center right nation? gay marriage, legalizing marijuana? we will answer that question, as we continue, straight ahead on "hannity." the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acnen women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. do not use if you have prostate or breast cancer. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet, or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs. common si
centralized in the leadership. so i do think that if you got say obama and boehner or romney and reid together with a relatively small number of people, you could exercise some pretty serious presidential leadership even with all the other thing going on in the country we talked about. >> rose: tom just joined us. go ahead tom. >> i'll just add to david's point i think when jon meacham 20 years from now writes the biography of president obama for his term there will certainly be a chapter that will be titled how could it be that barack obama turned out to be the worst communicating modern president in american history. and i think that's been himself has acknowledge that he had no narrative. i think that part of it was he was reacting to the hillary criticism, he just gives speeches. part of it he was truly focused on the substance of what he did. i would argue that it was not all just this noise thing. they had a very bad communication strategy and operation. there's a way of getting things across and repeating things. the way of explaining things like healthcare in a way americans would und
with a mormon. who else do they do that? is this a great country or what and i think president obama whatever happens, he's been a great representative for the best of america around the world. and our standing in the world has benefited from that. >> rose: what's necessary for a the president be able to reach the out and have the leadership ability and the kind of argument to prevail in uniting diverse forces. >> i guess i'm stripped by something i'm always stripped by when i have lunch or breakfast or dinner with a member of congress or politician. i always think reasonable and private. i happen to think the quality of the people in government now are as good as it's ever been and if you go back to the founding, little higher maybe. but it's a very high quality group of people. barack obama, mitt romney. if you just met them on the street, you would be really impressed by them if they had nut run for office. wow what an amazing person. i was reviewing the sheet of the congressional house candidates running against each other personal bios. there's a medal of arne here, founding a community
